9th – 30th November
Becket in Foxrock 2021 – Online event
In common with so many things over the last 18 months Beckett in Foxrock 2021
had to go online. Beckett in Foxrock is organised
by Tullow Parish in association with Mouth on Fire Theatre Company
to commemorate the Nobel Laureate’s association with the parish.
Beckett in Foxrock 2021 is an online film double bill of Samuel Beckett’s darkly funny The End memorably performed by Marcus Lamb and The Beckett Country which is beautifully filmed in sunny Dublin. It is interpreted and narrated by Dr Feargal Whelan and takes us to the places in Dublin which so influenced Beckett – from his birthplace in Foxrock (Boghill in All that Fall) to Tullow Church which he attended with his mother, to Trinity College and Carrickmines Golf Club where he mentally replayed the first four holes when, in later life, he couldn’t sleep. Tullow Church features very strongly both inside and outside.
The films, which are presented as one, are only available to view until November 30. They can be viewed at any time in the comfort of people’s own homes and all for only €10. Tickets may be booked on TakeYourSeats.ie
